Restaurants, Thai Putney

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

We get the impression that this London-wide chain of upmarket Thai restaurants trades more on its impressive locations than on singular food. Occupying the stunning Putney Bridge building, which stands alone, ship-like, on the water’s edge, this branch is one of the most striking. The downstairs cocktail bar has a clubbish vibe (great when full, a bit bleak on a weeknight), while the upstairs restaurant is minimalist so as not to distract from the uninterrupted view of the Thames. An extensive menu covers all the bases, with a few pan-Asian favourites thrown in for good measure; diners looking for authenticity may be disappointed. The benchmark dish of green curry was passable, yet lacked a certain depth of flavour; a chef’s special, described as thinly sliced chargrilled duck breast with exotic tamarind sauce, arrived instead as a piece of crispy aromatic duck (also on the menu) drowned in a sickly syrup with none of the sour notes of tamarind to cut the richness. We hope the kitchen raises its game, as the high prices warrant more than just a great view.
